Benefits of SEO for Doctors
What would it do for you to reach 1,000s of new prospective patients for your top procedures? How your it effective your revenue to rank #1 for your most critical keywords? Imagine if a potential patient could type in “breast augmentation near me” in your city and find you in the first slot. It would have a massive impact on your bottom line. This should be your practice, NOT your competition.
Google’s algorithm changes 400-500 times per year which makes it extremely difficult to keep up with critical ranking factors and what is most effective to improve and maintain your website’s search results.
That is where our industry-leading SEO strategies come in. We worry about the competition, on and off site SEO and backlink building so you can focus on your patient care.
What is Medical SEO?
SEO is short for search engine optimization and is a critical component of digital marketing. It involves to process of improving your website’s ranking in search engines for targeted keywords and search queries “organically” (without paying for ads). In other words, SEO for medical practices is putting together an SEO strategy so a practice website will show up high enough in search rankings for keywords to generate user traffic without paying for ads.
Every time a desktop or mobile search occurs on a search engine such as Google, Bing, Yahoo!, etc. they use algorithms to dictate which pieces of content to return first based on a given query. In previous years, it would be enough to load up on “keywords” know as keyword stuffing on a page for a given term you were trying to rank in search results for. Google has made a significant shift in the last five years on top search results to focus on quality and completeness.
As search algorithms have become smarter and more advanced, this tactic not only no longer works but can get you penalized or worse banned from search rankings. Therefore, it is more critical than ever to put a comprehensive medical SEO strategy in place for your practice to rank higher than your competitors.

How Long Does Medical Search Engine Optimization Take to Work?
Effective Medical SEO is really a never-ending optimization strategy. You do not want to “turn off” your SEO because eventually, the rankings you have worked so hard to achieve can dwindle over time with new Google algorithm updates and other factors.
However, that does not mean you have to wait 1 year or even 6 months to start seeing impactful results. In fact, in as little as 30 days in some cases, you can see large results if there are glaring “big wins” during our SEO Audit.
We tell our clients that SEO, while is does require some patients, usually take 3-6 months to begin to bear fruits of the labor and begin to see the full impact of the program. This
